Welcome To Dance Centre North



For the past 28 years, Dance Centre North – located in Syracuse, New York, has served the Central New York Community as a superb training ground for young dancers. A School dedicated to aspiring students striving for excellence in artistry and the pure joy of movement, supported by a professionally experienced faculty and offering numerous performing opportunities for their students throughout the year.

Classical Ballet is at the core of Dance Centre North’s education in dance training, encompassing elements of the Vagonova, Cecchetti and Royal Ballet techniques, with 10 levels in the curriculum purposefully intended to encourage incremental growth sufficient for the student’s age and physical development.

The dedicated staff at Dance Centre North develops and reinforces the talents of their students enabling them to gain performance expertise needed for the stage. The rewards of this training are not only graceful and strong dancers, but young people able to use the skills they have acquired while training in dance, in both their academic education and in future endeavors. In this nurturing environment students enhance their cognitive skills, attention and memory abilities and sensory awareness as well as mature physically, emotionally and socially. These are the overall benefits of dance on a developing body and brain which are necessary for life skills and academic development.

In keeping with the demands of the industry, Dance Centre North also provides their dancers with Modern/Contemporary, Jazz Dance, Conditioning Class, and Musical Theatre/Tap classes.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Dance Centre North family.

“And I hope you dance…”
